Subject: Stars, ordinary people and doctors
Part 1
29 minutes of famous people spruiking Camel, including Dick Powell, Henry Fonda, Ann Sothern, Maureen O’Hara, Marguerite Piazza, Eva Gabor, Richard Carlson and various baseball stars. Doctors have their say as well in sequences entitled “What cigarette do you smoke, Doctor?”. My guess is that around this time comments were first being made about the dangers of smoking, backed up by research, so Camel introduced doctors on their side.

Part 2
Seven minutes featuring ordinary people in various activities: a ballerina, a juggler, a female archer, water skiing, and a look back to the bad old days (1944) when cigarettes were hard to get but Camels triumphed even then.
